How To Make Different Cookies from One Cookie Dough

Don’t we all love homemade cookies? Yes, most of us should but as we all have our different flavour preferences, you could have encountered a time where you had to bake different types of cookies to meet the different flavour preference. The problem is how to you do bake all the cookies in so little time? Well, here is a simple and easy way for you to handle all the cookie demand you’ve got and still be sane after all the hectic baking!


1. Use a food processor or stand mixer

By using a food processor or stand mixer, you can quickly prepare many batches of dough quickly. In fact, start with the plainest cookie dough (like sugar) and work your way up to the chocolate and then the peppermint. Since these cookies most likely all start with butter, sugar, and flour, you don’t need to wash the bowl between each batch. You’ll save time by using a machine and by mixing many batches of dough in quick succession.

As each batch of dough is prepared, wrap it in plastic wrap or place it in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator till further use. By performing all your like tasks (mixing, forming, and baking) for the different cookies together, you’ll save time and energy:)

2. Make and freeze bulk cookie dough

after preparing your dough, you can just freeze them till needed. Before baking the cookies, just thaw the dough overnight and it should be ready to roll and bake the next day.

If you freeze the dough in round logs, you won’t have to wait more than an hour. You can have slice and bake cookies really quickly.

3. Make and freeze individual cookie dough balls

Another option is to freeze the dough in “ready to bake” dough balls.

4. Bake and freeze the cookies

This is probably the easiest way. Prepare the dough and then roll and bake before keeping the cooled cookies between layers of waxed paper in large, airtight containers. Baked cookies should be good in the freezer for at least a month if wrapped properly.

When assembling the cookie trays, pull the cookies out of the freezer and thaw them for a few minutes.
